Description

For fans of Katrine Engberg and Lars Kepler, the second chilling novel in Anne Mette Hancock’s #1 bestselling Danish crime series is a psychological whirlwind that explores the nature of truth and what it means when we can no longer trust what we know to be real.

When 10-year-old Lukas disappears from his Copenhagen school, police investigators discover that the boy had a peculiar obsession with pareidolia—a phenomenon that makes him see faces in random things. A photo on his phone posted just hours before his disappearance shows an old barn door that resembles a face. Journalist Heloise Kaldan thinks she recognizes the barn—but from where?

When Luke’s blood-flecked jacket is found in the moat at Copenhagen’s Citadel, DNA evidence points to Thomas Strand, an ex-soldier suffering from severe PTSD. But then Strand turns up dead in his apartment, shot in the head execution style.

What did the last person to see Lukas really witness that morning in the school yard? Was it really Lukas, or an optical illusion? Can you ever truly trust your eyes?

Book summary

My thoughts
I loved this book! If you enjoy watching tv shows like Law and Order SVU or Without a Trace you’ll love this book too. It read just like a crime tv show. There is a first book to the series called The Corpse Flower and while I do recommend this one it is not necessary to read it before reading this one.

a very fast and great read, I read it in one sitting and I was happy to do so. great twists and such breath taking events. I liked it very much, couldn't even guess who was behind everything. well written characters and a great story, I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
